White Sox's Hector Santiago: Signs with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago agreed to a minor-league deal with the White Sox on Wednesday which includes an invitation to spring training, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Santiago is expected to report to the big-league camp Thursday. In 2017, he appeared in 15 games for the Twins, posting a 5.63 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with a 51:31 K:BB over 70.1 innings. He started 14 of those contests and will be utilized as depth in the team's rotation for the 2018 campaign, although he could wind up starting the year at the Triple-A level.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Likely out for rest of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (back) is unlikely to return to the mound this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Santiago recently suffered a setback during his rehab assignment, and appears to have pitched his last game until spring training. The 29-year-old felt tightness in his lower back, and could use some time off to rest before pushing his body to return to the field.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Has setback on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (back) left his rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester and flew to Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He is still feeling that tightness in his upper back," Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey said. "So we're going to have a follow-up evaluation and announce the details of that one once we find out."

It doesn't sound like Santiago will be able to return this season. Even if he does, he's pitched so poorly that the Twins are unlikely to use him in any significant role in a playoff race.

Twins' Hector Santiago: Transferred to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (back) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

This does not impact when Santiago will return to the big-league rotation, as he will be eligible in the coming days, it simply opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Niko Goodrum, whose contract was selected as a corresponding move. Santiago is expected to make another rehab start for Triple-A Rochester on Sunday and could return to the rotation at some point in September.

Twins' Hector Santiago: To make another rehab start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santiago (back) is scheduled to make another rehab start for Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Santiago struggled with velocity in his last rehab start, topping out at just 86 mph according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, so he'll head back to Rochester for what will be his sixth rehab appearance since July 25 in an attempt to get back on track before rejoining the Twins. Santiago's possible return date remains up in the air at this point, but one will hopefully become clearer following his next rehab outing. Dillon Gee will continue to fill in for Santiago in the rotation while he's on the mend.
